Michaelis Menten Plot Using Maximum Velocity (Vmax), substrate concentration (S), the Michaelis constant (Km), and Cooperativity

Vmax = maximum reaction velocity (depending on the values you enter, the y-axis will have either units of % (0 to 100) or be unitless (0 to 1))

Km = concentration at which the velocity is 1/2 of the maximum

S = this is the value which will be the far right concentration shown on the plot [0, S].

N = cooperativity (N>1: positive cooperation; N=1: non-cooperative; N<1: negative cooperation
